Hello! I'm Nye Yackle with the Yackle Brothers Racing Team. I'm 14 years old and I love racing bicycles. I grew up in Cortez, CO. Prior to being 5 years old my family introduced me to mountain bike trail riding. Just before my 6th birthday I descended the "old" Porcupine Rim Trail in Moab, UT which is super technical, rocky and rugged. I was super proud of myself because the singletrack was classified a Double Black Diamond trail. I did my first race when I was 6 years old in 2009 which was a short, 2 lap race in the Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico. That's when I knew, that when I grew up, I wanted to be a professional cyclist! The next year I did 3 races. In 2010 I did 16 races including my first USA Cycling National Championships in Granby, CO, I placed 9th in the <10 age group at 7 years old. I kept getting more skilled and faster. At age 9, I raced the 2012 30 Mile Whiskey Off Road in Prescott, AZ. I placed 7th in Juniors U18 and 66th overall out of 694 racers!! Our family also made our 3rd trip to the XC National Championships which were in Sun Valley, ID. I won my first USA Cycling National Championship Title in the 10 and Under Category. In 2013 we moved to Reno, NV to be close to the California racing scene. In 2015, at age 12, I raced my first year of Enduro, I placed 3rd in Cat 2 Juniors U18 in the California Enduro Series and I was super happy!!! The next year I was 13 and I raced in The Carson City Off Road Capitol 50 race. After 50 brutal miles and 7,225 feet of climbing I finished 1st in the Amateur Juniors U18 and 22nd overall out of 600 racers. Going into 2017, my 9th year of racing, I have competed in Cross Country Racing for 8 years, Road Racing for 5 years and Enduro Racing for 2 years!! Slime/Genuine Innovations became a part of the Yackle Brothers Racing Team in 2014 and we have been proud partners ever since. I hope we keep up the teamwork for many more years!!! Thank you so much for the support Slime and Genuine Innovations!!
